‘Heroic dose’ is just the term used, coined my Terrence McKenna. That’s some serious pedantry.
‘A similar state’, not the exact state with the exact imagery. Again, you’re being a pedant.
You’re also gatekeeping spiritual experiences behind some kind of ‘purity’... which is just wrong.
An NDE is N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT). DMT is a guaranteed method to kill the ego, which feels like death to our material bound selves. NDE, by definition is the same prospect of our mortal coils about to end. Fortunately, with DMT you will assuredly see what is beyond the veil.
Higher doses of LSD and Mushrooms have reportedly come close to DMT states, but these are fundamentally different states in themselves and can hardly be likened to NDE or DMT on an average ‘trip’.
Have a read of the studies, they obviously will only convey the black and white of the results and not really clue into the experiences but as much as data can collate on what is happening... well, it’s right there!
Unfortunately, using traditional language makes it incomprehensibly impossible to convey even the remotest idea of what these substances open your mind to. It isn’t either super-sensory or transcendence. It is both without question.
The argument I make that they aren’t drugs but plants isn’t rooted in a materialistic notion. It is that these plants are of our planet, nature, experience and there is undoubted connection upon consumption. Religious and spiritual imagery comes to you without prior influence. You communicate with something without words, you see yourself laid bare.
These are all words, and utterly meaningless in the face of men who have repeated unfounded propaganda (Birth defects? Brain damage?!) and proven they will swallow further cultural lies if it confirms their own egoic biases.
There is a whole spectrum of unexplored conscious potential, with more and more studies backing up benefits back in the material realm. I’m there for it.Read More
Because my second link is broken apparently, this one works
Close, but you’ve got the main characteristics wrong. It isn’t a disconnection of consciousness but a ‘hyper-connection’.
In the case of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide and Psilocybin (As well as Ketamine and MDMA, 2-CB but I am not as well versed on these specifically) these chemicals actually bridge brain neurones that don’t usually communicate and so conscious thought is ‘expanded’. This can lead to a sense of disconnection and something similar to NDE, but this is a subjective ‘experience’ as the ego is by passed by these new connections.
Every reply and counter-like to my essay has regurgitated propaganda based on decades old campaigns to squash these practices. It’s incredibly sad because (in the case of Bloodexorcists reply) it clearly shows a lack of objective thought for the profundity of being able to explore the mind by discarding psychedelics as ‘drugs’.
It further shows ignorance to the very real imagery that religions and cultures have brought into reality that have influence from these deep reflections of the universe.
In very limited cases you can reach these states (Kundalini Yoga for example) without the catalyst.
To demonise a plant is incredibly misguided. To shrug off the potential experiences and lessons is sadly short sighted.
Brave men are now starting to explore beyond the typical ‘Heroic dose’ (Typically 5g of dried mushrooms) because there have been profound and verified reports of phenomena amongst groups concerning telepathy and shared experience.
We do not know how far the metaphysical implications of a psychedelic experience goes. These are not drugs, they are plants!Read More
